Specifically, changes to her summer schedule. Cole’s doctors have recommended the singer spends the next three to four months resting, thereby deep-sixing her summer tour plans.
According to the singer’s publicist, the organ came from a deceased donor through regional organ procurement agency One Legacy. Cole had been undergoing three kidney dialysis treatments a week since September.
Information about re-scheduled dates will be released shortly.
